Authorities rescued a man trapped in a Raymond, Nebraska grain bin Thursday. He had been stuck for more than an hour.

Lincoln Fire and Rescue said the man was conscious, alert and breathing when they got him out. When emergency crews first arrived, the man had been buried up to his waist for at least 30 minutes.

Crews used shovels, ladders, and other equipment to save the man. A helicopter was also circling the scene in case the man needed to be air lifted to the hospital.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening.

Lincoln Fire & Rescue, Raymond Fire Department, Valparaiso Fire & Rescue, and the Lancaster County Sheriff's office responded to the scene. A technical rescue trailer and vac truck were also on hand to assist in the rescue.
